Proud moment for the Polgar Girls
Ettie Nikolova and Abby Marshall faced each other on board 1 in round 4 at the 2006 Virginia Closed State Championship!
In the black shirt is Ettie, VA rep for the 2004 SP National Invitational. Ettie actually finished as the top female player at the 2004 US Open. Unfortunately, Ettie did not pay the $75 fee to the AF4C and that's why she did not receive a spot in the US Championship.
Abby of course won the SP National Invitational in 2005 and 2006.
Both Abby and Ettie ended up in a tie for second and both broke the 2000 rating mark! Congratulations to both Abby and Ettie!
